This hand-drawn design is developed from one of my favorite vignettes within the first Water Ways illustation. A gathering of diverse animals raise their voices in harmony, speaking truth to power and teaching us a protest song that we can all learn to sing. The border of the image spells out many ways that animals vocalize, like bray and caw. Your particular voice is important to hear. Speak up even when your voice shakes.
